Day 713 - Poll Results & New Poll

Last week, I asked what we should theme Emma's and Andrew's birthday party. Forty-seven percent thought it should be a Blue's Clues party, twenty-nine percent voted for Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and seventeen percent believed the party should be themed according to Lisa's needs and wants because she's the boss.

There were two unusual outcomes from last week's poll. First of all, although Blue's Clues received the most votes and the kids LOVE "couscous", Lisa and I decided on a Mickey and Minnie Mouse party. We couldn't find any Blue's Clues decorations and the one stray dog I dyed with blue food coloring ran away. Secondly, regarding the three votes that went towards Lisa being the boss, I have this to say: Lisa, I didn't know you had access to three computers.


For those of you who have the unfortunate pleasure of knowing me, you know that I don't have a great fashion sense. I've never really cared about keeping up my appearance that much, but I do try to be as presentable as possible when I'm at work. Regrettably, my definition of presentable is flip-flops and underwear.

As unbelievable as it may sound, my appearance goes further downhill when I'm not working. Since I'm usually cooped up at home during the weekdays, I care even less how I look. Not surprisingly, the kids added a new word to their vocabulary: hobo. At least when the weekends approach, I tidy myself up. Regrettably, my definition of tidy is clipping stray nose hairs and wiping after crapping.

The one thing that Lisa hates is when I don't shave. I've always been curious what I might look like with a lot of facial hair, but two things have always prevented this from happening: Lisa and my Japanese genes. But I do think I might have enough facial hair to grow a moustache and some weird patches of hair around my cheeks.

So what do you think? Should I stop shaving until my next job or do I continue shaving to prevent Lisa from serving me divorce papers?
